Granary House

Link to 474

The external stone steps we see in this photograph give an immediate clue to the origins of the building as a granary associated with what was once the neighbouring working farmhouse now known as Manor Farm House.

The early history of the farm can be read by clicking on Manor Farm House. In 1975, when the farmhouse and its outbuildings were offered for sale by auction, the granary was one of three lots into which the property was divided and the successful bidder for the granary appears to have been J.M. Grant of nearby Spring Garth. The auction particulars and plan can be seen here, the granary being lot two.

The following old aerial photograph shows the farm premises at a time when they were still occupied by the last tenant farmer Mr. Fred Horner.

In the photograph we see, in addition to the granary, a barn later demolished.

In November 1976 a planning application was made for conversion of the (disused) granary into a room with adjacent toilets for use by a pre-school playgroup. The application was granted. Two years later, in April 1978, a further application was made for conversion of the building into a dwellinghouse - again, the application was granted.

In 1983 the owner (Grant) was advised that no permission was necessary for the proposed erection of a conservatory.
